Located on southern boundary of Glennahoo townland. The location of this feature looks odd on the Discovery map but on the 1/2 inch map it is the lower peak which directly overlooks Maghanaboe and An Seabhac's description confirms this: binn árd cnuic ar an dteorainn theas [Glennahoo townland]. Anglicised name appears on ½ inch map.   Beenatoor is the 312th highest summit in Ireland.

Short Summary created by march-fixer,  10 Sep 2012
With its feet in the Glenahoo River and its back resting up against Coumbaun, this peak looks out south west towards the head of the Dingle Peninsula. The name suggests that there was a bleaching green in the locality, which would necessitate a large expanse of sloping grass, well exposed to the sun.

The summit may be reached, either by walking in through the enchanting Glenahoo River valley or as an extension of a route across from Coumbaun and Beenoskee . Either way, it is a challenging trek requiring around 3 to 4 hours if approaching along the Glenahoo track. There is ample parking at the old burial ground and church just off the R560 road, about 400m west of the Glenahoo track entrance. Extreme care should be taken when walking along the R560, which is a very busy and narrow road.

There is no problem with access. This track is way-marked in along the Glenahoo track, but it is only of use just beyond the head of the valley because it swings back south and up over the ridge, away towards Anascaul Lake. There are no fences to cross and the peat hags near the col are innocuous. Care should be taken at the summit as there can be high winds and there is a sheer drop west to the Glenahoo valley floor.
